Brethren J. C. Galloway and A. J. Jones were requested 
to notify brother Johnson of these offers. 

Report on Finance was read and adopted. 

On motion, a unanimous vote of the Association in- 
structed the Treasurer to pay Rev. W. T. Davis, our Evan- 
gelist and Colporteur, the amount collected for Evangelist 
and Colporteur, and then pay him the balance due for ser- 
vices in 1895 out of the different mission funds sent up to 
the Association, and the remainder of said mission funds, 
if any, to be held subject to the orders of the Executive 
Committee. 

By motion, it was ordered that the Carey Baptist Asso- 
ciation employ an Evangelist and Colporteur for the ensu- 
ing year, and it was the sense of the body that Rev. W. T. 
Davis should be retained by the Executive Committee in 
that work, and that he be employed for his full time. 

On motion, the regular order of business was suspended 
and the following amounts were pledged for the ensuing 
year:

REPORTS. 



REPORT ON PERIODICALS. 

To the Carey Baptist Association : 

Brethren— We, your committee, beg leave to submit the fol- 
lowing: 

We recommend the Alabama Baptist to the members of this 
Association. We believe from the study of its pages that it will in- 
culcate Baptist principles stronger in the minds of its readers, and 
that it will act as a stimulant, causing us to be more energetic in 
the work of Christ. 

We recommend our Southern Baptist Convention series of Sun- 
day-school helps and paper as being equal to any published any 
where. We recommend Sabbath-schools to every church and the 
use of this noble literature, because it enables us to get truths from 
the Bible that we could not get without its helps. 

We recommend the Mission Journal to all our people. We get 
the information from its pages that is so much needed among the 
brethren of some of our churches. We believe by studying this 
journal and taking heed to its teachings that we could march up to 
this Association a stronger band of missionaries than ever before in 
the history of our Association. 

A. W. Parker, Chairman. 



EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE'S REPORT. 

We employed Brother W. T. Davis to work as Evangelist and 
Colporteur in the Association at the rate of thirty-three and one- 
third dollars per month, allowing him to serve but one church, and 
limiting him to six months' work, but to be paid only for the work 
done. 

We most earnestly recommend the continuation of this work. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Allen D. Thompson, 
J. R. Jarrell, 
A. C. Allen, 



J. D. Dunn, 
J. P. Motley, 



Committee.

REPORT ON BIBLE AND COLPORTAGE. 

We, your Committee on Bible and Colportage work, submit the 
following: 

The Bible is God's revelation to man, and it is necessary that 
every person be in possession of God's revealed word. So your 
committee recommends that the Carey Baptist Association employ 
a good man for the whole associational year. Let him meet each 
pastor at some of his regular appointments, and let him visit all the 
destitute places in the Association and preach for them, also let him 
visit from house to house, distributing Baptist news and religious 
literature, teaching and praying with the people. By so doing, all 
the people may come in possession of the word of God, and the des- 
titute places may be enlightened, churches built up, and much 
good done. Your committee further recommends Brother Davis as 
a suitable man for the work, as he has a good experience in the 
Colportage work. H. H. Baird, Chairman. 



REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS. 

Dear Brethren — Your Committee beg leave to submit the fol- 
lowing report on our State work : 

Regarding the subject in the light of truth, we trust that it is 
the motto of the Baptist host of Alabama to carry the gospel of God 
to every nook and corner of the State. Indeed, if we rightly appre- 
ciate the command of our blessed Lord and master, we can not be 
content while there are any who are destitute of the word of life in 
our bounds. The memorable words of the Savior found written in 
Acts 1: 8. "Ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and 
in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the 
earth," should certainly have a charm for each true disciple of 
Christ that would impel him to the highest possible idea of duty 
with reference to State viissions, which answers beautifully to the 
Judean missions of Christ's day. 

This great work has been grandly supervised for many years by 
our beloved W. B. Crumpton. Many churches have been consti- 
tuted, many houses of worship have been erected, many happy 
hearts are lifted Heavenward today over the State, and many sa- 
cred altars of worship have been erected to God's honor during our 
organized efforts to preach the gospel to the destitute of our be- 
loved Alabama, a great portion of which, doubtless, would not have 
been accomplished had it not been for the united effort of the 
brotherhood of the State. 



r 



—12— 



Also, State mission is the foundation of all other mission work. 
It is building surely; it is building scripturely — "Beginning at Je- 
rusalem." But, at the same time, we can't afford to wait for the 
conversion of all in our bounds before we press out into all Judea 
and to the uttermost part of the earth. 

For further information, we refer you to the report of the State 
Board of Missions, which we submit as a part of this document for 
your consideration. 

Further, we recommend that this Association continue their 
hearty co-operation with the State board, and raise by subscription, 
or pledge, the amount apportioned us by the board. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. J. D. Upshaw, 

For the Committee.

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS. 

The field of labor of the Home Mission Board of the Southern 
Baptist Convention is composed of the Southern states and the ter- 
ritories and the island of Cuba. At the time this board was organ- 
ized in 1845, the aggregate membership of the Southern churches 
did not exceed 450,000, of whom 200,000 were colored, while th« 
present membership is more than 2,700,000. The Home Mission 
Board has been an important factor in promoting this growth of 
membership. 

The Home Mission Board seems to have taken on new life since 
its headquarters have been removed to Atlanta, Ga. Notwith- 
standing the general financial depression, according to the report of 
the board at the last session of the Southern Baptist Convention, 
f le last year was the most prosperous in its history, as appears from 
the following general statement: 

"Number of missionaries this year, four hundred and twenty-five, 
— an increa c e of forty-four over last year and more than in any year 
of the board's history." 

"Baptized five thousand nine hundred and twenty-one, — an in- 
crease of one thousand four hundred and fifty-one over last year, 
and five hundred and seventy-two more than have been baptized in 
any year since the organization of the Convention." 

"Cash receipts $88,640 20, being $15,314. 29 larger than last year, 
and greater than any year except the centennial." 

"Increase of missionaries has been nearly 12 per cent. , of re- 
ceipts 20 percent., and of baptisms 32 per cent." 

This is a very gratifying showing for the board to be able to 
make, as the above statistics speak for themselves and indicate that 
it has entered upon a new era of success. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. A. Phillips, Chairman. . 



REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

Your Committee on Foreign Missions beg leave to submit the 
following: 

Carrying forward Foreign Mission work is but obeying the com- 
mand of our Savior, who said: "Go ye into all the world and 
preach the gospel to every creature." 

The gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation to every 
one that believeth. The duty of publishing this gospel everywhere 
is imperative, for said the Master, "All power is given nnto me in 
heaven and in earth, go ye therefore." And again: "This gospel 
of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to 
all nations" 

The work of publishing this message is a pleasing and glorious 
work. In its effect it binds up the broken hearted, proclaims lib- 
erty to the captives and the opening of the prison to them that are 
bound, and comforts all that mourn. 

The work of preaching this gospel of the kingdom everywhere 
is a delightful and pleasing task, because the kingdom which it pro- 
poses, in its effect, to build up and establish, is an everlasting king- 
dom which shall rise and flourish and have no end, and the glorious 
King to which it alludes must reign until he hath put all enemies 
under his feet. 



" 



—15— 

And once more, preaching this gospel in foreign lands is a 
glorious work bocause, as a result, they shall come from the .hast 
and West, and North and South, and shall sit down with Abraham, 
Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of their Father. 

We your Committee, do not feel it our duty to try to make ar- 
guments in support of Foreign Missions as being scnpturally au- 
thenticated, but do regard it a very important matter, that the As- 
sociation consider and adopt the best and most effectual plans for 
advancing the work. Respectfully submitted, 

B J. R. CONGER, 

J. A. Dunn, 
M. A. Johnson, 

Committee. 



REPORT ON SUNDAY-SCHOOLS. 

Dear Brethren— We are sorry to note the small number of 
Baptists who take an active interest in Sunday-school work. We 
find from the statistics of our last session of the Carey Association 
only seven churches out of thirty-nine reporting Sunday-schools ; 
and among 2670 members, only 426 students and officers in theSun- 
dav schools ; and when we take into consideration the fact that a 
maiority of these students were members of no church, or members 
of other denominations, it brings it down to a very small per centage 
of Baptists indeed who are giving the Sunday -schools their support. 

Brethren, these things ought not to be. There is a cause for 
every trouble. Remove the cause and the trouble will cease. The 
plan is laid down in God's word. We are called into his vineyard 
to work. We are commanded to bring up the children in the way 
they should go. Are we doing it? Your Committee can conceive 
of no better way than by bringing them together eve ry Lord s day 
to study His word, and be instructed in the way of truth. Brother 
pastors, give your churches no rest on this subject till every one 
organizes a Sunday-school. Brother deacons, and laymen, assist 
your pastors in this great work. The Sunday-school is only the 
church at work. Th?n brethren, for the sake of the Master's cause, 
for the sake of the poor little waifs of our land who are growing up 
in ignorance, awake and do your duty along this line, and we are 
sure the time is not far distant when all the churches ™i l ££"1 
with a full report of Sunday-school work. May the Lord help you 
to do your duty is the prayer of your committees. 

S. A. yJ ■ J.HOMAS, 

J. J. McCobd, 

Committee. 



REPORT ON TEMPERANCE. 
We, your Committee on Temperance, beg leave to submit the 

f0ll0 Tem g perance ! What is temperance? It is that which God has 
ordained and commanded the whole human family to observe 
F^st, We should be temperate in all things for the preservation of 



—16— 

our physical powers. To be intemperate in eating, sleeping, work- 
ing, talking, or in idleness, sows the seed of disease, when fruited 
brings dissolution of the body. Second, Temperance is the way that 
God has appointed for us to preserve our minds for a high and grand 
usefulness in life. Intemperance dethrones reason; makes the 
mmd delirious, lowering beneath the brute beast; is degradation 
and shame in this life, and in the life to come everlasting death 
Third, Intemperance of the tongue is an evil full of deadly poison 
which sets on fire the whole course of nature, even the fire of hell 
to be double tongued intemperate. Temperance in talking is greatl v 
needed. Speak not evil of thy neighbor, of thy brother, of thy 
pastor, nor of one another. The Lord spake no railing against any 
man. He is our way, our example, therefore, brethren, be temper- 
ate in talking, for an intemperate tongue stirs up wrath. Fourth 
lhe use of intoxicating spirits as a beverage is intemperance which 
lowers and rums man and unfits him for any usefulness in life. It 
dethrones all reason of the mind, destroys the principle of love 
making man without natural affection, truce breakers, liars, thieves' 
murderers, and all together desperately wicked. Making the hus- 
band and father worse than a brute, ruining home. Intemperance 
ruins the bright sons of fathers and mothers, bringing manv to the 
jail and to the gallows. Young men and boys, children, children of 
the Carey Baptist Association, we cry with a warning voice, shun 
all of the bar-rooms and drinking shops, for they are traps in the 
hands of devils to destroy you. Brethren, we can't afford to tol- 
erate intemperance and drunkenness, when we look out and see the 
vast evil that is upon us today. Because of strong drink our na- 
tions, our sons destiny, largely depends upon the position taken by 
us, the representatives of Christ. Therefore, we cannot afford to 
he on the side of intemperance. 

Be strong, courageous, and put away from you all beverages 
and traffic oTWong drink. Our every interest demands it Ou? 
profession demands !t. Our loyalty to Christ demands it. We prav

REPORT ON MINISTERIAL EDUCATION, 
the Slewing ripon^ Ministerial Ed «^ion, beg leave to submit 

„f «??? i8 * d f y of 1 educa tion and advancement, and the demand 

of the times is for educated manhood and womanhood. This being

^r 11 -^^ 18 .^ 1111 ^ 1100 ' in order t0 *n»y discharge this great 
responsibility, they should be equipped with the very best clasrict

education possible. We are greatly deficient in our own Associa- 
tion on tbis last point, and our people should assist in this work. 
We want to say, however, that our representative ministers are 
perhaps the best educated and brightest and brainiest and most 
liberal hearted class of men on this continent ; and the great work 
accomplished by them is the strongest argument we can present 
for an educated ministry. M. W. Whatley, 

J. D. Garrett, 

Committee. 

In view of the importance of the better education of our minis* 
ters, on the field, who cannot attend College or Seminary, and be- 
lieving that they can only be reached by the correspondence plan of 
study, and believing that the Anderson course of study, conducted 
by Dr. G. S. Anderson on the correspondence plan, and strength- 
ened by his Institute work, is our best if not our only hope for 
helping them. Therefore, be it resolved by this Association : 

1. That we calender the Anderson course of study with the other 
regular work of this Association, and that we recommend to our 
churches that they so calender the work and take regular collec- 
tions in its favor. 

2. That we recommend to the Home Board, and to our State 
Board of Missions, to make this work in favor of our field ministry, 
as a part of their regular work.

CORRESPONDING LETTER. 

Dear Brethren — We send kindly greeting to you after our de-

the great Ruler and his richest blessings be with you.

1. We believe in only one true and living God and that there 
are three persons in the Godhead, the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. 

2. We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testa- 
ments are the word of God arid the only rule of faith and practice. 

3. We believe in the doctrine of eternal and particular election. 

4. We believe in the doctrine of original sin and the impotency 
of man to recover himself from the fallen state he is in by his own 
free will and ability. 

5. We believe that sinners are justified in the sight of God 
only by the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ. 

6 :„ We believe that God's elect shall be called, regenerated and 
sanctified by the Holy Ghost, and that the saints shall presevere in 
grace and newer finally fall away. 

7. We believe that Baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordi- 
nances of Jesus Christ, and that true believers are the only proper 
subjects of the ordinances, and that immersion only is baptism. 
• a 8 ' We Delieve in the resurrection of the dead and a general

ing and the joys of the righteous will be eternal.
